Can’t get enough of swinging through the trees like a 21st-century Tarzan? If so, be sure to put Adventure Valley on your summer to-do list. Located in House Springs, just 30 minutes from downtown St. Louis and 20 minutes from West and South County, the new adrenaline park features more than a mile of ziplines — 10 lines in all — which soar through a beautiful wooded ridge. Line No. 9 is a “super zip,” measuring 1,100 feet long and achieving speeds of up to 50 mph. The facility also offers paintball on eight fields, two wooded, plus two ziplines that run over select fields — so you and your friends can take aim at each other from the ground as well as the air.
